- ... Lupin (Lupinus L.) has the potential to become a true alternative for soybean as protein source, especially in the more temperate regions in the world. However, diseases such as anthracnose (Colletotrichum lupini), gray mold (Botrytis cinerea), and root rot or brown spot (Pleiochaeta setosa) are important threats for lupin production, leading to yield and quality losses.

- ... This study tested the herbicidal effects of raw and processed culinary oils (rapeseed oil, sunflower oil, olive oil, flax/linseed oils) on nine plant species (poppy, white clover, alyssum, lupin, buckwheat, mustard, oats, perennial ryegrass, tall fescue). Oils were also tested on weeds that naturally emerged from farm soil. Plants were coated with oil using a pressurized hand pump, then maintained ...
